Review: Messenger of Truth

Messenger of Truth Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am very drawn to the private detective and psychologist and especially to the time, which is just following the end of WWI. In London just following the war was an interesting time in the clothing and speach and of course lifestyle. There was still quite a divide between the rich and the working class. It is refreshing in many ways to visit the simplier way of life and it is eye opening to realize the luck we have now in current times with living conditions, employment and health care. Ms. Winspear has it all just right and as we open the book, we are immediately taken back to that long ago time.

Maisie helps people solve mysteries and is often hired by people who can afford her help. But she is almost phychic in her ways. Her and her assistant, Billy, find themselves in some sticky situations but Maisie always seems to be able to steer them to clear waters.

A lovely series.
